This is a great unique show from 69 with a guest violinist and sax player.

John Tenney?

from comments - posting by John Tenney to rec.music.gdead on 19 June 2001

"late 1969 I played fiddle on a song caled "I'm a Lovin' Man" for a proposed Pigpen solo album. Jerry, Pigpen and Weir were playing. Bass was Dennis Parker, then with a SFband called Allmen Joy,
The session was at Pacific High Recording. PHR was the "avant-garde" studio of the time.
My recollection is that Pigpen's album was maybe going to come out on Mercury or its subsidiary Smash."

John Tenney (violin, mandolin) has performed over three thousand performances of Broadway musicals and two thousand-odd chamber music appearances, including more than fifteen years with the Nob Hill Ensembles. He is founder and leader of the Golden Gate Ensembles. John has been concertmaster for Joel Grey, Liberace, Dionne Warwick and Tony Bennett and has played in orchestras for Marlene Dietrich, Lena Horne, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Barry Manilow, the Temptations, Smokey Robinson, Boz Scaggs, Bjork, and countless others. He toured nationally with the Van Morrison Band. There is no counting the numerous society parties with the local big bands or the hundreds of recordings he’s made, playing everything from religious music to rock and roll to film soundtracks. John is equally fluent in classical performances, having played with the San Francisco, Oakland and San Jose Symphonies, the San Francisco Ballet, the Bolshoi Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, the San Francisco Opera and one of Western Opera Theatre’s national tours.
